Tara Wells, a witness, told Channel 2 Action News she saw the gray car sitting in front of her house about 9 a.m. Thursday. 

“As I approached the car, immediately I saw that the passenger male had a bullet wound to the temple,” she said. 

According to police, the teens were in a relative’s car the morning of their deaths. Neighbors told Channel 2 they didn’t know the teens and had never seen the car. 

Robinson’s mother told the news station they had been in a relationship for three years. She said Robinson graduated from Woodland High School last year.  

Fulmer was a senior at Eagle’s Landing High School and was on the school’s softball team.

“Savannah was one of the most memorable kids I will ever coach. She always did everything I asked of her, not always with a smile, but always with respect,” coach Brittany Lewis told Channel 2. 

Fulmer also played softball for a team affiliated with the Elite Sports Complex.

“The Gamers family has lost a beautiful young lady this week and we are heartbroken,” her coach said in the post, adding that she was a “mother to be.”

A memorial service will be held for Fulmer at Salem Baptist Church at 2 p.m. Saturday. The family is asking for donations to Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary in Locust Grove or to the Pregnancy Resource Center in Stockbridge in lieu of flowers, the Gamers said.

An investigation is ongoing.
